    And unpause windows update too.
    Hello,Thanks for all the answers.Just this one: It is said that WUA Manager takes over the system's auto updates, and have to 'tick' in the Dashboard to disable the built-in windows update, then why unpause windows updates ?I can in the task manager change from 'disabled' to 'manual' the windows update.Answers will be appreciated.Thanks.Motim
    PS. And I'll try version 2.6, already downloaded it.

    Why do you want to do that?

    I reckon that WAUmgr likely just disables the service although I cannot test that. One of the reasons that I don't use it is because it cannot completely disable updates whilst allowing manual selection and download/ installation.

    On another note: I'm still using Sledgehammer/ WUMT but other third party utilities seem to work including W10 Privacy.

    Update check via Sledgehammer/ Wumt versus update check by W10 Privacy (with PSWindowsUpdate powershell module installed to configure fake WSUS server).

    W10 Privacy isn't really for novices as it comes with extras other than manual windows updates.

    You cannot check for and install updates if the Windows Update service has been disabled. I have never disabled the service.

    Let me rephrase: I reckon that WAUmgr disables windows update service and only enables it once you lanuch the program and run an update check. I couild be totally wrong.

    Can anyone who has used WAU Manager confirms the above assumption?

    It seems that the service still runs.

    Is the service still running after you have closed WAU Manager?

    Yes but i only let it run for test purposes. It would be better if someone who uses WAUmgr as the sole method of controlling updates to test.
